If design-build could be genetic, it would be in Jason’s DNA. Jason’s father was both an architect and a contractor, and Jason grew up both at the drafting table and on the job site. Jason’s path to founding his own firm began among the Craftsman and Victorian homes lining the streets of Berkeley, where he grew up appreciating older architectural styles and the stories they told. College and graduate school in Los Angeles dropped him into a world of modern architecture outside any cohesive context—the freedom to design without accounting for what’s next door.
After a decade in southern California, Jason returned to the Bay Area where he could take on the challenge of doing modern design in a region that has a strong historic character. Here he found he could look at old architecture through a modernist lens, distilling the dialogue between the two while creating homes that support his clients’ 21st-century lifestyles.
AT6 began as a design-only firm, but Jason soon recognized that an integrated architecture and construction model would provide better control over the final product and protect clients from accountability gaps between architects and contractors. So, like father like son, AT6 became a design-build firm focused on providing clients with a smoother, more coordinated and trusted journey to their dream home.
